HOLLYWOOD DIRT OVERFLOW
KIRSTIE ALLEY IS HAPPY THAT HER 17-YEAR-OLD SON IS ENGAGED:

KIRSTIE ALLEY'S 17-year-old son True . . . (--Yes, that's his name) . . . is engaged. And Kirstie is cool with it. --On "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" yesterday, she said, quote, "I feel good because they're really in love. True's very . . . he's got a level head. He's a good guy. He's very monogamous, and he's very sweet with her." --She added, quote, "I was married at just 19 years old, and that didn't work. Then I was married when I was 30 years old, and that's when everyone said you should get married, and that didn't work. So, I don't think I'm an expert on the subject."


PARIS HILTON AND HER BOYFRIEND DID NOT BREAK UP:

There was a rumor going around that PARIS HILTON had dumped her boyfriend, Doug Reinhardt. It's not true. --Paris had this to say about it on Twitter . . . quote, "That story is a ridiculous lie. 100% FALSE." (--There you have it. You may now return to your own, less important, life.)


MATTHEW FOX LOST HIS VIRGINITY AT THE AGE OF 12:

On the first seasons of "Lost", MATTHEW FOX was determined to find out what was "in the hatch". But in real life, he'd already answered that question for himself a long time ago. --If you think I'm setting up a lame, sexual double entendre, then you're absolutely right. (???) Matthew tells the new issue of "Playboy" that he was 12 when he lost his virginity. --He says, quote, "[She] was about two years older than me. It wasn't her first time. I can actually see the event in my mind's eye, like photographs. --"It happened literally on the ground by a river while a rodeo was going on in town. It was absolutely terrible and awkward . . . just two (effing) kids lying down and pulling our pants down." --Matthew also denies those tabloid reports that he cheated on his wife with a stripper. He says, quote, "The story is not true, and I am not going to comment on it. The subject of fidelity is very personal." --He goes on to call his wife Margherita . . . whom he's been married to for 19 years . . . the love of his life.


DID MERILEE GERTH GET $725,000 OUT OF JESSE JAMES . . . THANKS TO A DNA-STAINED SHIRT???

We heard yesterday that Merilee Gerth settled a sexual harassment complaint against Jesse James out of court. Well, several websites now say that Jesse paid Merilee $725,000. --And the reason he decided to part with so much cash is because she had a serious smoking gun in her evidence file: A shirt with Jesse's DNA on it.


TIGER WOODS' COLLEGE BUDDIES USED TO CALL HIM "URKEL":

TIGER WOODS had a humiliating nickname at Stanford University. His college buddies used to call him URKEL. That's according to Tiger's "E! True Hollywood Story", which airs TONIGHT at 10:00 P.M. Eastern. --Tiger didn't like it, by the way. He thought it was derogatory, and possibly even RACIST. (--Here's a preview clip from the episode . . .)http://www.usmagazine.com/celebritynews/news/tiger-woods-was-nicknamed-urkel-in-college-2010134


THE WOMAN ACCUSING STEVEN SEAGAL OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT ONCE BRAGGED TO TYRA BANKS ABOUT BEING ABLE TO TRICK MEN INTO GIVING HER WHATEVER SHE WANTS:

The woman accusing STEVEN SEAGAL of sexual harassment may not be the wide-eyed, innocent victim she tried to portray herself as. --Last year, Kayden Nguyen appeared on "The Tyra Banks Show", where she proudly proclaimed herself a LIPSTICK LESBIAN . . . and said, quote, "I can use my sex appeal to get any girl that I want and trick any guy to getting what I want."(--Here's video . . .)http://www.tmz.com/videos?autoplay=true&mediaKey=3df23d3f-f0c3-4c9a-83be-733efc832ca4--Kayden is suing Seagal for a minimum of $1 million . . . claiming that she took a job as his personal assistant, only to find out that what he really wanted was a SEX SERVANT. --Meanwhile . . . the sheriff's department of Jefferson Parish, Louisiana will hold a press conference today to discuss the case. --Seagal works as a reserve deputy there for his reality show, "Steven Seagal: Lawman". It's also the location of Seagal's home . . . where the alleged harassment took place.


ANDY DICK WANDERED INTO SOMEONE'S HOME IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT LAST WEEK:

ANDY DICK added another bizarre incident to his resume last week . . . when he wandered into some random family's house in Los Angeles in the middle of the night. (--It's not clear what night this happened.) --A female resident of the home called 911, and the audio hit the Internet yesterday. It's pretty funny, if you can ignore, for a moment, how tragically close Andy probably is to DEATH. --The woman tells the 911 operator, quote, "I have an intruder in my house. He walked right into my house, but I don't think he's going to hurt us. My husband took him outside." --In describing his condition, the woman says, quote, "He's definitely under the influence of something. I'm very scared, please send the cops over. He's absolutely loony, he's absolutely wasted. He said something about he thought his son was here. He's really off his rocker." --Asked to describe Andy himself, the woman says, quote, "He's white, he looks well-to-do. He looks like a rich white man. Now my son is following him because he's going over to someone else's house to do the same thing."(--Here's the audio of the 911 call . . .)http://tmz.vo.llnwd.net/o28/newsdesk/tmz_audio/041210_andy_dick_911_v2.mp3
-Police showed up and took Andy back to his own home. They didn't arrest him or charge him with anything. --Just a few days later, on Friday night, Andy was kicked out of a place called the South Coast Winery Resort & Spa in Temecula, California. Why??? Because he, quote, "showed signs of intoxication." (--Showing "signs of intoxication" is uncool at a winery???)


LINDSAY LOHAN SAYS DR. DREW IS A QUACK:

VH1 addiction "expert" DR. DREW PINSKY has been diagnosing LINDSAY LOHAN from afar for months now, and she's had enough. -Lindsay told some website called GossipCop.com, quote, "He's a quack and a sell-out . . . Please tell him to stop!" --Most recently, Drew said, quote, "If she were my daughter, I would pack her car full with illegal substances, send her on her way, call the police, and make sure she was arrested. --"I would make sure she was not allowed to get out of jail. I would then go to the judge and make sure she was ordered to a minimum of a three year sobriety program."


POLICE ARE LOOKING FOR RANDY QUAID AND HIS WIFE AGAIN:

Do you realize that RANDY QUAID and his wife EVI still haven't settled that legal issue over the $10,000 hotel bill they allegedly skipped out on last year??? --They were due in court in Santa Barbara on Monday . . . but once again, they no-showed. So yesterday, a warrant was issued for their arrest. --According to RadarOnline.com, their lawyer was seen on his phone at the courthouse, PLEADING with the Quaids to show up. Obviously, it didn't happen. --The Quaids did end up paying that bill . . . but they're still facing misdemeanor charges of burglary, defrauding an innkeeper and conspiracy.


DID COLUMBUS SHORT BREAK A MAN'S JAW DURING A PICKUP BASKETBALL GAME???

COLUMBUS SHORT . . . (--whose credits include "Stomp the Yard", "Cadillac Records" and the upcoming "Death at a Funeral") . . . is accused of breaking another man's jaw during a pickup basketball game. --Jason Hill claims that Short beat him down so badly on February 24th that he needed two surgeries to fix his jaw. --And he claims Short and some buddies approached him at his North Hollywood apartment complex earlier this month and threatened to drop him again.--Hill was granted a restraining order against Short on Monday.--Short's attorney doesn't deny there were fisticuffs . . . but he claims that Hill started the fight.--As for Short showing up at Hill's apartment complex . . . the attorney says that was just a coincidence. He claims Short and his crew were there to visit friends, and never even saw Hill.


SARAH PALIN HAS MADE AT LEAST $12 MILLION SINCE JULY:

Still wondering why SARAH PALIN quit as governor of Alaska??? Here's your answer: Since stepping down at the end of last July, she's made AT LEAST $12 MILLION. --That's about 100 times her governor's salary . . . and it might be a low estimate. --The money comes from a combination of TV and book deals, plus speaking engagements that pay her up to SIX FIGURES.


KATHY GRIFFIN WILL GET A PAP SMEAR . . . ON TV:
Televised colonoscopies are out. Televised PAP SMEARS are in. That's what KATHY GRIFFIN thinks anyway. She's getting one done this Friday for her TV show, "My Life on the D-List". --Kathy's doing it to encourage other women to get checked regularly. And she's doing it with STYLE. --The SMEAR will take place POOLSIDE . . . and Kathy is having her down-there area VAJAZZLED for the occasion. (--There's no word when the episode will air.)


SAY GOODBYE TO BIG BEN'S BEEF JERKY:

BEN ROETHLISBERGER'S idiocy has officially robbed the world of Big Ben's Beef Jerky. (!!!) --Yes, Ben had his own brand of beef jerky. But PLB Sports . . . the company that made it . . . is pulling the plug. Production has been halted, and all existing product is being DESTROYED. --PLB President Ty Ballou says the company is exercising a MORALITY CLAUSE in Ben's contract. He adds, quote, "I hope he can learn from this." (--By the way . . . PLB is the company that made FLUTIE FLAKES cereal . . . which was named after quarterback DOUG FLUTIE.) --Meanwhile, Ben met with NFL President Roger Goodell yesterday. Even though police let him off the hook, the league might still level some sort of punishment against him. --Ben called the meeting, quote, "very productive" . . . but there's been no indication so far if Goodell is taking any action.


CHACE CRAWFORD HAS BACKED OUT OF THE "FOOTLOOSE" REMAKE:

The "Footloose" remake is back on the shelf, after CHACE CRAWFORD unexpectedly backed out yesterday. --No reason was given, but so-called "sources" say he couldn't make it work with his "Gossip Girl" shooting schedule. --Crawford was replacing ZAC EFRON . . . who bowed out to concentrate on more serious roles. --"Entertainment Weekly" says the studio is now expected to cast an unknown, and may launch a nationwide search for their new star. --"Dancing With the Stars" JULIANNE HOUGH is still lined up to play the female lead.


SIGOURNEY WEAVER SAYS JAMES CAMERON DIDN'T WIN THE BEST DIRECTOR OSCAR BECAUSE "HE DIDN'T HAVE BREASTS":

SIGOURNEY WEAVER sounds bitter that "Avatar" didn't do better at the Oscars. And she's blaming the Academy for pumping up "Hurt Locker" director KATHRYN BIGELOW because she's a woman. --Sigourney says, quote, "[JAMES CAMERON] didn't have breasts, and I think that was the reason [he didn't win Best Director]. He should have taken home that Oscar." --She's also ticked that "Avatar" didn't win Best Picture. She says, quote, "In the past, 'Avatar' would have won because [Oscar voters] loved to hand out awards to big productions, like 'Ben-Hur'. --"Today it's fashionable to give the Oscar to a small movie that nobody saw."


SETH MACFARLANE WILL DIRECT A MOVIE ABOUT A MAN AND HIS TEDDY BEAR:

"Family Guy" creator SETH MACFARLANE will direct an R-rated comedy called "Ted". It's about a man and his relationship with his teddy bear. The bear will be computer-animated, and MacFarlane will provide the voice.

CHECK OUT THE TRAILER FOR "HUMAN CENTIPEDE" . . . A MOVIE SOME PEOPLE ARE CALLING THE GROSSEST FILM OF ALL TIME:

Gross horror movies have been making a comeback for the past decade or so, but they may have just reached their absolute peak. --There's a movie kicking around film festivals right now called "Human Centipede" . . . and some people are calling it THE GROSSEST MOVIE OF ALL TIME. --It's about a demented doctor who takes three people and surgically transforms them into the ABOMINATION of the film's title. --How does he connect them? Well, that's a major part of what makes this movie so gross. Let's just say that they're hooked up in such a way that their three alimentary canals have become one. (???)(--"Human Centipede" is going to be released in New York City only on April 30th. Check out a trailer here . . .)(--WARNING!!! There is some disturbing imagery in the following clips . . .)http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hLAfSbFkvY

CONAN O'BRIEN'S LIVE COMEDY TOUR KICKED OFF ON MONDAY NIGHT . . . AND IT SOUNDS LIKE IT'S PRETTY AWESOME:

CONAN O'BRIEN'S "Legally Prohibited from Being Funny on Television Tour" kicked off in Eugene, Oregon . . . of all places . . . on Monday night. (--Just hours after he announced that he'd be launching a new show on TBS beginning in November.) --And it sounds pretty awesome. Here are a few things people are talking about: --Conan did poke some fun at his . . . uh, dismissal . . . from "The Tonight Show", but NBC would be relieved to know that he did it in his typical self-deprecating style. (--As opposed to giving them the RIPPING they deserve.) --He joked, quote, "This is the first time anyone has ever paid to see me perform. But people have paid to make me go away." --And then he explained the, quote, "eight stages of grief [you go through] after losing your talk show" . . . which included, quote, "denial, blame myself, blame everyone else around me, anger, paranoia, 36 hours of Red Bull and Halo . . . ". . . buy everything Amazon says I would also like (I bought a Team Edward thong), and get your ass to Eugene, Oregon!" --It doesn't sound like he talked much about his new TBS gig . . . but he did joke, quote, "I'm sure some of you heard I got a new job. Starting tomorrow, I'm the new manager of the Eugene Banana Republic." --As far as guests, his sidekick, ANDY RICHTER was there . . . as well as his band, which was without superstar drummer MAX WEINBERG. (--There was a rumor that Max had switched allegiances and wanted to replace the departing KEVIN EUBANKS on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno". But that position has already been filled by "American Idol's" band leader. Check out Page 5 of TV Quick Hits for more info.) --"30 Rock" star JACK MCBRAYER and the band SPOON were there as special guests . . . along with Triumph the Insult Comic Dog and the Masturbating Bear, who, for supposed legal reasons, has been renamed the Self-Pleasuring Panda. (--That was probably a joke.) --The show also included pre-taped bits, and music performances . . . including Conan's new versions of "On the Road Again" and "I Will Survive". (--Here's a fan-shot clip of Conan singing his "I Will Survive" . . .) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-rc8kjzS8M --The tour, which will stretch into June, continues tonight in Vancouver.


SERIOUSLY, EVERYBODY: GEORGE LOPEZ IS TOTALLY COOL WITH BEING BUMPED FOR CONAN O'BRIEN:

GEORGE LOPEZ was on "Larry King Live" last night, and used that opportunity to reiterate that he is MORE THAN COOL with moving his show to make room for CONAN O'BRIEN at TBS. --He said, quote, "What [Conan] was concerned with was that he wasn't going to do to me what was done to him at NBC. That was his biggest concern. --"[But] I'm not getting 'Lenoed.' I welcome Conan. I think moving to midnight . . . hey, going to work an hour later, it's a dream come true, and the pay's the same." --He also joked, quote, "I believe this combination . . . a same-sex DESI ARNAZ and LUCILLE BALL, if you will . . . will take late night into a new generation and change the landscape. And, Larry, I'm a Latino, I know something about landscape. --"It's going to be fantastic come November."(--You can watch a clip of George on "Larry King Live", here . . .)http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2010/04/video-george-lopez-says-im-not-getting-lenoed


THE LADIES OF "DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES" DO *NOT* HAVE NICOLLETTE SHERIDAN'S BACK:

The ladies of "Desperate Housewives" . . . TERI HATCHER, EVA LONGORIA, FELICITY HUFFMAN and MARCIA CROSS . . . have released a joint statement in support of the show's creator, MARC CHERRY. --Last week, NICOLETTE SHERIDAN filed a $20 million lawsuit against Cherry . . . accusing him of assault and battery, gender violence and wrongful termination. She also characterized him as an abusive and hostile person to work with. --Well, the Housewives who still have their jobs DO NOT have her back. Their statement reads, quote, "It would be irresponsible of us to let the public believe that being a part of this show from its inception has been anything but a blessing. --"We have no first-hand knowledge of what Nicollette may or may not have experienced, but we would never characterize our set as a hostile environment. It is, in fact, the opposite. --"The friendships and support that Marc Cherry, the cast, the crew and the producers have shared for the past six years have made this a wonderful job that we are grateful for every day." (--So, the "Desperate Housewives" set can be described both as a happy, pleasant utopia . . . and a horrifyingly lawless place, with rampant hostility, assault and abuse. Sounds a little like Oakland.)


"THE TONIGHT SHOW" HAS NAMED KEVIN EUBANKS' SUCCESSOR:

NBC has confirmed a TMZ report that "American Idol's" musical director, Rickey Minor, has been chosen to replace KEVIN EUBANKS as the leader of "The Tonight Show" band. (--You can find out more about him on his website, here . . .) http://rickeyminor.com/--Since Kevin won't be leaving for another six weeks, Rickey will finish out "Idol's" current season. His "Tonight Show" debut will come on June 7th. (--Kevin says he's leaving permanently to do something new. But if he ever wants his gig back, I'm sure NBC could find a way to keep them both. Maybe they could just ask this Rickey guy to move to the second half hour.) (???)


A PREVIEW OF TONIGHT'S 200TH EPISODE OF "SOUTH PARK":

"South Park's" 200th episode airs TONIGHT, and they're loading it with stars. Well, not REAL stars . . . but "South Park's" versions of the stars. --In tonight's episode, the show faces a class-action lawsuit from "every celebrity 'South Park' has mocked." (--Here's a brief preview clip . . . which includes an appearance by MECHA-STREISAND!!! . . .) http://www.southparkstudios.com/clips/267115

CHRISTINA AGUILERA OR LADY GAGA? AKON'S VOTE IS IN:

Apparently, America is on the cusp of being divided yet again . . . this time, by an awesomeness debate between CHRISTINA AGUILERA and LADY GAGA. --AKON already has his vote in. And since he signed Lady Gaga to his record label in 2008, it isn't surprising that he didn't choose Christina. --He tells "Vibe", quote, "Aw man, that's not even any competition. You are actually giving Christina too much credit. She always had her cool little look and way about how she went about things. But soon as Gaga came out everything switched up. --"Christina stepped out of her own shell to become something different. And the crazy thing is Christina is really talented. She has unlimited range when it comes to singing. Her voice is out of here. -"I just think she just needs to believe in herself more. --"I think sometimes she gets insecure because of all of the success Gaga has had, not realizing that she was already successful before Gaga came out." --He goes on to say, quote, "Christina shouldn't have anything to prove or anyone to compete with. I miss the old Christina Aguilera. I like the old one better than the new one. --"Honestly, Gaga and Christina could probably get together and do something that's amazing. But that's impossible if they are both trying to do the same exact thing musically."


VIDEO OF TRAVIS BARKER TEACHING RIHANNA TO PLAY DRUMS:

In preparation for her upcoming tour, RIHANNA is taking drum lessons from TRAVIS BARKER. She posted video of it on her site . . . and it sounds like Travis was impressed.

NAZZY’S RANDOM STUFF


THERE'S A NEW ANTI-RAPE DEVICE WITH RAZOR-SHARP BARBS THAT CLAMP ONTO A RAPIST'S DONG:

In general, I'm against all products whose sole purpose is to THRASH a man's genitals. But I'm making an exception for this little stroke of genius . . . --It's called the Rape-aXe, and it's an ANTI-RAPE device that has rows of razor-sharp barbs, which clamp onto a rapist's junk. Or think of it like this . . . basically, the Rape-aXe is a flexible latex sheath. It's kind of like a condom only thicker, and it fits inside a woman's most intimate of areas like a tampon. --The idea is that when a man goes to rape a woman, the barbs will hook onto his junk. And even when he pulls out, the Rape-aXe will stay attached to his genitals. --It's extremely painful, it makes it impossible to take a leak, and in order to remove the Rape-aXe without tearing up their junk, rapists will have to go to the hospital . . . where they'll then be ID'd as a sex offender and arrested.--A woman named Sonnet Ehlers invented the Rape-aXe after working with rape victims in South Africa. --She says the Rape-aXe isn't available to the public yet. But she's going to pass out 30,000 of the devices for free before this summer's World Cup in South Africa. After that, they'll go on sale for less than $2 apiece. (Global Post)


YOU CAN BUY A PURSE THAT HOLDS AN ENTIRE BOX OF WINE:

The only thing classier than drinking wine out of a box is drinking wine out of a box that you've got hidden in your purse. (???) --Enter the Baggy Wine Coat . . . a purse that's specially designed to hold an entire box of wine. --According to the product website, quote, "Simply take the wine bag out of the box, place it in the Baggy Wine Coat and close the flexible top . . . If you want to carry your wine with you, just grab the handle and go!" --And the Baggy Wine Coat even has a side dispenser for easy pouring, and a rubber bottom to prevent it from tipping over. Like I said . . . it's high-class all the way. (???) (Yum Sugar)(--You can buy the Baggy Wine Coat for $73.50 here . . .)http://www.scandinaviandesigncenter.com/Products/eur1/Trademark/Menu/10736/Baggy


ARE THERE MORE PIZZA SHOPS, GUN SHOPS, OR STRIP CLUBS IN YOUR AREA?

I just discovered a blog site called FloatingSheep.org. Its operators analyze user-generated Google Maps placemark references, and use the data to create color-coded maps comparing all sorts of interesting stuff. --For example, the blog's newest map compares which parts of the U.S. have more pizza shops, gun shops and strip clubs. It's loads of fun. (???) (Consumerist)(--You can link to the map here . . .)http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_x-FKwdGnxic/S28fvYclwpI/AAAAAAAAAC0/Q-N_iNNKrBQ/s1600-h/us_guns_pizza_strip_100122.jpg


A NUDIST GROUP WANTS YOU TO SAVE MONEY BY TAKING A "NAKATION":

If you're trying to plan your next vacation, a group called the American Association for Nude Recreation wants you to think about taking a "nakation" instead. That's a vacation at a nudist resort. --According to the AANR, "nakations" are better than regular vacations for at least two reasons:#1.) Some people can never figure out what to bring on vacation. But if they don't have to pack clothes, they don't have to stress about it.#2.) And not packing clothes means you don't have to check luggage, which can save you lots of money . . . like several hundred dollars. --Oh, and did I mention you'll be surrounded by NAKED PEOPLE, at least some of whom are bound to be attractive? --A woman named Carolyn Hawkins handles public relations for the AANR. She says, quote, "You have all walks of life here. The good thing about it is that you don't know the banker from the bus driver if they're not wearing their clothes." (ABC News) (--Warning: There's some nudity at this link.)http://www.aanr.com/


A PRO-LIFE PHARMACY IN VIRGINIA WENT OUT OF BUSINESS BECAUSE IT REFUSED TO SELL "IMMORAL" PRODUCTS LIKE CONDOMS AND MAKEUP:

Less than two years ago, a self-proclaimed "pro-life" pharmacy called the Divine Mercy Care Pharmacy opened its doors in Chantilly, Virginia (--about 30 miles west of Washington, D.C.). --The idea was to ONLY sell products that were in no way morally questionable. That means no birth control pills, no condoms, no pornography, no tobacco and even no makeup. --Now, maybe you're wondering how well a pharmacy could do if its owners refused to sell any those products. --Well, here's your answer: Not very well. --We know this because the Divine Mercy Care Pharmacy was forced to shut down recently. --According to its owner . . . a guy named John Bruchalski . . . the pharmacy's biggest problem was its, quote, "convenience factor." (--My only question is, if the pharmacy didn't sell cigarettes, pornography, makeup, condoms or birth control pills, what DID it sell?) (Washington Post)


GETTING BOTOX INJECTIONS MAKES IT HARDER TO MAKE FRIENDS:

Presumably, people get Botox injections in order to look and feel better about themselves . . . and to improve their social lives. -But now, a new study from the University of Wisconsin has found that using Botox can make your social life worse. Here's how . . . --Botox is derived from botulinum, a nerve toxin that paralyzes the muscles in a person's face. It helps smooth wrinkles, but it also makes it more difficult to express a normal range of emotions. --Since Botox users can't really smile, frown, look angry, sad, or show empathy, other people have a harder time picking up on their facial cues . . . and that makes it tougher to connect with them. --A guy named David Havas led the study. He says, quote, "Blocking facial expression diminishes the experience of emotion. --"Our faces are normally alive with activity, which contributes to our understanding of each other, and there is a strong link between our facial expression and our ability to comprehend the meaning of language. --"If people seem slow in reacting to what they are being told, it is likely to be interpreted as a lack of sympathy or interest." --In other words, getting Botox injections can make it more difficult to make new friends, and can cause serious problems with the ones you already have. (My Fox - Los Angeles)

FOUR THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT FAST FOOD:

White Castle opened in 1921 and became the world's first fast food chain. But the phrase "fast food" didn't make it into the dictionary until 1951. Here are four more interesting facts about fast food . . .

#1.) MCDONALD'S MAKES *WAY* MORE MONEY THAN ANY OTHER FAST FOOD CHAIN. There are actually more Subway restaurants worldwide than McDonalds locations, but McDonald's makes a lot more money. They employ 400,000 people in 126 countries, and they're America's largest buyer of beef, pork, and potatoes. --According to the most recent statistics, McDonald's makes about $23 BILLION in profits a year. Taco Bell, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Pizza Hut make less than HALF that COMBINED. And Burger King only makes around $2.5 billion a year.
#2.) FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS MAKE MOST OF THEIR MONEY FROM SOFT DRINKS AND FRENCH FRIES. The markup on fries is around 500%.
